Interesting new machine at the gym

Thursday, March 03, 2011

Yesterday a new machine at the gym caught my eye. It's a elliptical/bike hybrid. Basically you sit down on it like a bike but pedal like you are on an elliptical. There are also features where you can do chest presses and other strength exercises.

There are only two of these that I saw. I spoke with the person on the other one and she told me she liked the machine because it is easier on her knees. I decided to try it since it was new and I was dreading my treadmill workout that day, and also because I have been having problems with my knee lately. I did not feel like it gave me a truly awesome workout (I wasn't really sweating much) but it was good for my legs and I got some things done on my phone since I could surf the net. Haha. I am planning a more strenuous workout today - my usual class. If they don't pull me out for a diaper disaster. :)

  I'm having a hard time picturing it! your weight mostly on the seat part? It all sounds very awkward...??

I'm still in love with the far, so good with my knees!

Happy workouts to you...with no diaper blowouts!

(I like frogs.)

    Good job trying out the new machine. Sounds like fun.
Fingers crossed for no diaper disasters so you can make it all the way through Body Combat!
Have fun, hottie!
